Front Vista Created by Liz Cole

The traditions of those who have come before are woven throughout the fabric of these hills and speak to the evolving relationship between land, water and community. The design of this vista focused on acknowledging our heritage and celebrating the craft of place and time.

The central element of the garden is a mural of the sun and the masks of the seven clans of the eastern band of the Cherokee nation. Bands of grass and marble radiate from the center in a labyrinth pattern, representing our connection to the celestial universe. The earth is depicted through a landscape quilt that consists of alternating blocks of local landscape materials. The rock patterns within the quilt consist of earthwork patterns and markings that have been found throughout our landscape.

This vista was created through the assistance of many volunteers and local artists. We appreciate the time and effort that all contributed to the development of this vista.
